Teen Mom: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Catelynn Lowell
Catelynn Lowell has found success with reality TV after starring in an episode of MTV’s 16 and Pregnant when she and Tyler Baltierra decided to give their daughter, Carly, up for adoption. Even though Carly would not be present on the show, the pair were then picked to star in the spin-off series Teen Mom OG as one of the only couples to choose adoption for their child after becoming pregnant at a young age. Now they have had their lives documented for almost seven years and they have grown up, stuck together, got married and welcomed another little girl, Novalee, all while on camera. The pair are one of the only couples from the show to stay together after going through a teenage pregnancy, and are very open about all of the ups and downs in their lives including family drama and personal mental health issues. Even though so much is in the open, there is still a lot not known about the Teen Mom OG star, check out 10 things you didn’t know about Catelynn!
Although MTV does some special editing to avoid showing the stars smoking on-camera as much as possible, it has been caught a few times, but mostly with Jenelle Evans. As it turns out Catelynn and Tyler are both smokers, and more evidence of that was shown in the most recent season of Teen Mom OG; although Catelynn said she had given up both pot and cigarettes when she became pregnant with Novalee, her battle with mental health issues forced the young star to admit she smokes pot at least “twice a day” and images of her smoking a cigarette have not been edited out as heavily.
9. Wedding Number One
After so many years together and 2015’s fairytale wedding, many forget that Catelynn and Tyler were supposed to be married a few years ago after they first became engaged. It was Tyler though who ended up calling off their July 13, 2013 wedding and devastating Catelynn. “I thought I was ready, but as the time gets close, I just don’t think so,” Tyler said of his decision. The two participated on a season of VH1’s Couples Therapy which is where Tyler dropped the bomb on Catelynn, but also where they learned to work through it together and not call it quits on their entire relationship. The two were married on Saturday August 22, 2015.
